Mr. and Mrs. Pulaski loved the summer because the days are longer allowing them to sit on the deck and drink ginger beer and play board games. Mr. Pulaski won most of the time because Mrs. Pulaski let him. She didn’t always yell “UNO!” when she should have yelled “UNO!” She was not averse to throwing the game.
She did it because you loved to watch him smile. He smiled when he won. He seemed to know she was letting him win which made him smile even more.
He never thought he bested her. He thought they bested each other and that seemed to be what summer was for.
